My son attends East now and he has improved a lot since attending. I just would like to say the Mr. Quarrels is doing and excellent job and he along with some wonderful teachers has really got a handle on the school and students.
If you're worried about gang activity, safety,or quality academic programs; then east jr high in west memphis is the school of choice. They have a high level of parental support & staff involvement. The prinicpals & staff monitor their children the old time way. They monitor the hallways, talk/counsel the disobedient kids, reward the honor roll kids & recognize the children who want to learn & have made significant improvement. When it comes to sports & other activities, we the parents are involved & supportive. They have a teaching staff which challenges the students academically & invites community leaders/role models to give advice about choices in life. I love this school & my daughters attitude has improved positively.
